No patriot left behind

From a quiz administered to tenth graders in Washington State (students are instructed to Agree or Disagree with statements):


3.) If a political leader has done something wrong, it is all right to get rid of him or her by whatever means necessary.
5.) In certain situations it may be justified for a political leader to bend or break the law for the good of the country.
Hmmm. Noting that this quiz is entirely unrelated to their studies Paul Joseph Watson writes: "The paper gauges whether or not the student shows fealty to the power of the state and whether the student believes in the right to overthrow a corrupt government."

He connects this targeting of American teens to a survey of marines and national guard in the 90s who were "asked if they would be willing to fire on American citizens in a time of crisis."
"We are by no means against patriotism when it means love of country. Unfortunately however, the new brand of so-called patriotism translates as worship of government, and that definition is something that the founding fathers never intended."
As a person with school-age relatives in Washington State I know parents would want to be notified of a questionnaire this politically-charged being administered in public schools. (Infowars)
